Happy Friday everyone! Does your wardrobe need a sprucing? Well Gwyneth Paltrow, that amiable and exquisitely attired globule of mayo, has some new totally reasonably priced clothing. And they come in all sizes!* (Celebitchy)

Yesterday I told you about Frank Ocean coming out of the closet and how it was a Big Deal. (I then went into work and called him Kevin Ocean proving myself to be whiter than GOOP.) Our very own Caspar has some ideas on how Ocean’s future should look. (Dummy)
I bet you didn’t know there was a Shed Of The Year contest. Well there is. And while it might not be Frank Ocean Big Deal, I kind of want to live inside this year’s winner. It’s all Hobbit-y and filled with lovely booze. (Neatorama)
However I don’t think I could live inside Poland’s famed Crooked House. Particularly not if booze were involved. (Laughing Squid)
Speaking of booz-a-hol, this handy little map has broken down our country into areas that tweet about beer and areas that tweet about God. As you might expect, America’s Phallus (aka Florida) and its surrounding areas are very pious. (Floating Sheep)
Speaking of godliness, I was watching Angels and Demons last night. (Why? Because I was out drinking and tweeting about beer and came home and it was on, OKAY??) Anyway, through some weird bit of synchronicity, the Higgs boson or “God Particle” plays an integral role in the plot. But did you know, Camerlengo Ewan McGregor, that “god particle” is short for “goddamn particle?” Read this and other interesting factoids in The Telegraph’s interview with Higgs himself. (The Telegraph)
Someone has made an All-Bacon Burger. My heart seized up just typing that. (Boing Boing)
And, um, totally unrelated, here are some fantastic Mad Men action figures including, oh yes, Fat Betty Francis (bam a lam). The accessories are killer. (The Curious Brain)
Not content to let Katie Holmes have center stage this week, the Crying Dawson Meme is back with some uniquely 90s problems. (Uproxx)
We were just discussing this past week on The /Filmcast that the AOL dial-up sound that is so prevalent in Nora Ephron’s You’ve Got Mail is one of those nostalgic sounds of tech gone-by. Here are a few more to set your elderly heart a-flutter. (Unreality)
Comic-Con is right around the corner and to get you in the mood here are some rad Ladies of Galactica posters. I want the Starbuck one with all my nerdy heart. (Qmx)
Though many will go see Resident Evil for Milla’s peek-a-boo zombie fightin’ outfit, I’m mostly excited for Kevin Durand. Here a slew of new images. (Film Drunk)
And if you havent’ had enough geek in your week, here’s a double dose with this Season One “Game Of Thrones” duel done with light sabers. Get him, Ned!
Finally (finally!), someone mentioned in yesterday’s comments that this video belongs in Pajiba Love. Right you are. Alcohol, ennui and “Doctor Who”? It’s practically cannon. Enjoy this conversation between filmmaker Jeremiah McDonald and his younger self. It’s delightfully timey-wimey.
